    Table of contents

    This is a short yet very pleasant circular walk through the Tall Trees trail and the Blackwater Arboretum. The latter is your first point of exploration, with a gorgeous collection of exotic trees to discover. The rest of the walk leads you through forests populated by magnificent flora, including some massive redwoods that tower over the scenery. Perfect for a brief stroll outdoors.

    Route Description for Tall Trees Arboretum Walk

    From the car park, cross the road and head through a gate onto a gravel track. This passes through a cleared space, then a short stretch of forest before coming to another gate. Walk through this to reach the Blackwater Arboretum, passing under an oak archway. The Arboretum has a wonderful collection of trees from all corners of the globe to marvel at!

    Walk through to the far end of the Arboretum, and pass through a gate into another stretch of forest. Coming to a junction, turn right, then right again onto a cycling path. Follow this east across a stream until you reach the Tall Trees trail. Turn right onto this path, and follow it south for a short distance until you arrive at the very first track you came in on. Turn left to cross the road and return to the car park.
